H1N1 Outbreak Latest

There are no new reports of probable H1N1 cases in Kentucky.

Right now, there are five probable cases in Kentucky. They're from Fayette, Daviess, Montgomery, Warren, and Hardin counties.

State officials are still awaiting results from the Centers for Disease Control, to determine if those are actual confirmed H1N1 cases.

We're told the delay in getting those test results back is because of a backlog at the CDC.

Kentucky only has one confirmed case of the virus. A woman from Bowling Green got sick after traveling to Cancun, Mexico in April. She's recovering in a hospital in Georgia where she had traveled for a wedding.

Nationwide, there are 380 confirmed cases of H1N1, or the swine flu, in 36 states.
Globally, the virus has infected more than 1,400 people.
